12/07/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/07/16 17:33 Basic information: Jordan is a 3 yr. old male domestic short hair mix. The owner surrendered Jordan because his behavior has become unpredictable. Jordan has no health problems and the owner has not taken him to a vet. Socialization: The owner states that around strangers Jordan is very fearful and tries to hide. He has lived with children between the ages or 10 months to 6 yrs, but he does not like to be around them (he growls and hisses at them). He has never been around dogs or other cat so the owner has no idea how Jordan would react around them. Jordan has bitten the owner before (October of 2016) because the owner attempted to pick up Jordan. Behavior: Jordan has never been bathed or had his nails trimmed. He does not like having his coat brushed, being picked up and or being placed in a cat carrier (he will often hiss and swat at the person). He allows some petting for a few minutes but will growl and hiss when he does not want to be touched For a new family to know: The owner describes Jordan as Fearful and unpredictable cat with a medium activity level. Jordan has never played with toys; he lives mostly indoors and sleeps anywhere in the house that he wants. In the home Jordan will often hide from people and prefers to stay hidden from everyone. Jordan eats Friskies brand dry and wet cat food and is feed a cup and a half two times a day. He is litter box trained and uses an covered litter box with clumping litter. Jordan had a fabric scratching post witch he often used to scratch on. Behavior during intake: During intake Jordan was very tense with stiff body, he allowed us to scan (-) put on collar, photographed and placed in cat kennel.

12/10/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
The former owner stated that around strangers Jordan is very fearful and tries to hide. He has lived with children between the ages or 10 months to 6 yrs, but he does not like to be around them. Reaction to assessor: Jordan looks neutral, lying down on his cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Jordan sits upright in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Jordan began to hiss with ears flattened then growls and withdraws from social interaction. While he warms up he did accept the stroke, but remained wary with his environment and began to retreat as he stiffens up in place. Placement determination: Experience / no child Jordan tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
